The general public may not know that Mazda is currently the fastest growing motoring franchise, percentage wise, in the country.
And South Coast owners of Mazda vehicles may not be fully aware that there is now a state-of-the-art workshop on the premises in Port Shepstone.
So that's good news all round for Mazda fans.
Master technician Leonard Miller certainly knows his way around the workshop and, ably assisted by Michael Malunga, provides superb and fast service.
Mazda Port Shepstone's dealership manager John Lambert was thrilled that Mazda had a top-notch service department based in Port Shepstone.
“We've had so many compliments since it opened,” he said.
The workshop comes complete with all the necessary diagnostic and special tools required to carry out the work in a professional manner.
“It's vitally important to get your vehicle serviced a local dealership,” said John.
“There's a peace of mind that comes with having a 12 month or 20 000km warranty of your parts,” he added.
“People don't always necessarily appreciate this. A backyard mechanic can't offer this kind of service.”
The facility, which is shared with County Ford, is backed up with all the modern equipment and resources.
“We have the quality, and like to get it fixed right, first time,” he said.
'Impossible is possible' is Mazda's slogan, and with the success of the MX-5 and other quality vehicles, it's no wonder the company is going from strength to strength.
